The two major steps taken by the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu led administration by removing fuel subsidy and floating of Naira with a view to taking our economic back to normalcy from corrupt elements in the country is a welcome development. However, I am sceptic about the success of the policies without paying adequate attention to quality education by all the stakeholders vis: the parents,the learners, teachers and the government at all levels . This is because quality education is globally recognized and accepted as most effective power or instrument to engender social changes and desired reformation "he stated
